|In recent years, parents have assumed an even greater degree of leadership in directing their children's intervention, as well as advocating for improved quality of services for all individuals with autism. Not surprisingly, parent participation in the ABA conference has risen steadily. Given this trend, a business meeting will be held to provide a forum for networking and for exploring ways in which the Behavior Analysts can assist families of newly diagnosed children and families seeking ABA services. The New Jersey Association for Outreach and Services for the Autism Community (COSAC) will provide Continental B (1st floor)reakfast. All interested parents and professionals are encouraged to attend.
